Simon Cowell on how he is coping with life in quarantine - and it sounds like a lot of fun!
Simon is currently in Malibu with his partner Lauren and their son Eric. His advice is “Most importantly, occupy your mind.”
“You have to stick to a routine. Fortunately, with things like with Zoom, you stay in touch with the world, keep motivated, come up with ideas… I never get this time, normally.”
Talking to Extra's Terri Seymour it sounds like he has been enjoying spending time with Eric. “I was concerned how Eric was going to cope with all of this. He has been absolutely amazing… He is still able to do schoolwork, and now we are camping on the weekends in the garden.”
“Lauren, the first time, 11 o’clock said, ‘I can’t deal with this’… and I said ‘No, we are staying outside.’”
Simon also said he was enjoying cooking “I’m doing a bit of cooking,” adding, “I’m exercising. Funny enough, more during this time as well, sticking to the diet.” He said it’s easier to stay on track while at home. “The only difficult thing is when Eric orders a pizza… That’s the number one thing I miss.”
How much weight has he lost? “I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds.”
Simon will be back on our screens in the UK for BGT on Saturday and in America for AGT on 26th May.
